said i was going to be tougher than jim lehrer and i'm going to be. let's discuss a big issue that never came up in the debate and that is the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year, sequestration it is called unless the president and congress work out a deal. under what is called the warren act employers and this is not just federal employers, all companies must tell workers 60 days in it advance of mass layoffs but ten days ago the obama administration told companies with federal contracts to ignore the law, don't notify the workers of the coming layoffs as part of the fiscal sequestration and it would pick up the lawsuits resulting. what is wrong with that? >> another example of this administration ignoring or skirting the law to help the president's reelection chances. here is where we are. sequestration is going to be the law in january. we haven't seen the leadership from the president on this. he is worried because the companies know they have to lay people off and this they told congress this. omb says you don't have to comply with the law and the worst part is tha
1/2 points all day. squared with sergio garcia, jim furyk misses a putt and garcia wins one up, marking a point at which europe came all the way back to take a 13-12 lead. 18th hole, martin kaymer wins the putt to give europe the point they needed to win the ryder cup. >>> the packers leading by seven. drew brees strikes to colston, tying the nfl's all-time mark set by the great johnny unitas. behind in the fourth, the saints had a shot to take the lead, but missed a 48-yard field goal with two and a half minutes to play. green bay won it 28-27. new orleans is 0-4. >>> some trickery in the nfl yesterday. a fake field goal turned into a two-yard touchdown pass to danny amendola, putting the rams ahead of the seahawks late in the first quarter. they would go on to win 19-13. in cincinnati, trailing 7-3 on fourth down, the bengals used a direct snap to running back cedric peerman on a fake punt for a 48-yard gain. they would score on a one-yard pass a few plays later. and the bengals beat the jaguars 27-10. all right. >>> now for another look at the weather, here is nbc meteorolog
on the exact same date, october 3rd, in 2000. a debate that also was moderated by jim lehrer. >> the fact is the wealthiest may more taxes. if you're a family of four making $50,000 ins massachusetts, you get a 50% tax cut. >> now, here's mr. george bush same day, 2000. same moderator making the same promise. it didn't work then. why would we believe the same day, same party, same kind of political philosophy now? >> we won't believe it because we've lived through it and we found out that it was a fraud. look, what the average middle class family got out of the bush tax cut was equivalent to enough money to buy an extra diet coke a day. who is going to believe mitt romney when he gets up there and said, look, i'm going to take care of the mid class, no tax increases on the middle class, no tax cuts for the wealthy. he's mr. 47%. he's spent the whole year deriding the majority of american hes and catering to people at the very top. i think jared's absolutely right. these numbers not only don't add up, but if romney is ever forced to specify any of these deductions, what about home interest
